I think that if people compile their .emacs they get what they ask for.

That's not very helpful.

For you, perhaps not. But we have discussed this on emacs-devel numerous times in the past, and every time it has been clear that different people have different opinions. Many people consider lisp source to be "work in progress" until they compile it, and do not want Emacs to load it by default if there is a compiled version around. The compromise is to issue a warning.

If you have a problem remembering to compile your .emacs, then either delete the .emacs.elc file and stop compiling it, or investigate one of the solutions that people have come up with to compile it automatically.
